After departing Kansas City in 2006, Whitmore joined Alonzo King LINES Ballet where was involved in more than a dozen nationally and internationally touring creations over seven seasons. In 2007, he joined the Suzanne Farrell Ballet, traveling to the Edinburgh Dance Festival and also performing at the Kennedy Center. From 2014-20221, he was a member of Tanz Theater Münster, where he was awarded the prize for Outstanding Artist by the Gesellschaft der Musik- und Theaterfreunde Münsters und des Münsterlandes e.V.

Whitmore’s choreographic credits include creations with Joffrey Ballet School, Alonzo King LINES Ballet Training Program and B.F.A.
